Will SPAM kill email.

Written by Tom on Tuesday 12/12/06


The last months have been bad for SPAM, to the extent that our mail provider has
now said that they can no longer provide their services for us. We have one hundred
or so email accounts and as we all know a large proportion of the email traffic is SPAM.
Someone some where is paying for that bandwidth. Our email provider said that they are investing in
additional anti SPAM servers that will remove 98% of the SPAM but this an extra
service that comes with a significant price tag. When I enquired what this price was
they indicated that they were not interested in our business.
Will SPAM get to the point where it will break email for the SOHO user that can not afford premium services?
